About the property

2 BR/2BA luxury cabin, trout fishing, kids & dogs love this former summer camp

This luxurious mountain cabin sits atop a knoll overlooking a very large, stocked trout pond ready for fishing. Enjoy grilling out on the home's deck with the new grill while taking in the beautiful view, or just relaxing on the porch by candlelight listening to the cascading water over the rocks of the stream running to the side of the house.

Inside you'll find a very large great room with a combination living/kitchen/dining room which is perfect for relaxing entertainment by the wood-burning, native stone fireplace---perfect on the chilly mountain nights. The living room is equipped with a new HD Television and Blu-Ray/DVD player, as well as DirecTV satellite TV with movie and sports channel packages. The home has wireless, high-speed internet access. The kitchen is equipped with all utensils, as well as virtually all baking, grilling, and other cooking tools that you'll need to prepare a gourmet meal. New glassware and dinnerware sets for 8 are stocked in the cabinets. A coffee maker with permanent filter, toaster, convection toaster oven, and microwave oven are in the home, as are a new washer and dryer set.

This home has just recently been placed on VRBO and has new furnishings, linens, and high-end mattresses. The master BR has a King-sized bed and the second BR is a Queen-sized mattress (both Stearns & Foster). Sheets are 1000-thread count. The living room has a suitably comfortable sleeper sofa (Queen) and new sleeper loveseat (Twin) to make the home sleep 7-8 people, if needed (owner approval).

Originally a summer camp over fifty years ago, the property on which the home now sits is a private, family estate comprised of 66 mountainous acres with two ponds that are fed by 3 streams that all originate on the property. The home sits on the footprint of what was the camp's headmaster's cabin. The original native stone steps lead up the hill to the deck giving the cabin unique, historic character.

There are only two cabins on this camp now, although the tract of land is very large---66 acres---so the two homes on this property remain private from one another. A small mountain separates the two and they are not within sight or hearing range of the other.

There are two small fields at the top of the mountain that are perfect for playing games with the family and throwing balls to the dogs, etc. Unused gravel roads and trails wind through the property and are perfect for leisurely strolls, short hikes, and dog-walking. There are some hidden trails in the forest for those that are brave-hearted that like outright bushwhacking! Kids absolutely love playing in the streams on the property sifting through the water looking for 'rubies' in the rocks and throwing pebbles in the pond.... And the trout-fishing is loads of fun. The largest pond is about an acre and has an outbuilding/garage overlooking that's used as an entertainment site with a very large deck for grilling, eating out, or just relaxing while watching the kids fish.

Structural relics of the old summer camp still exist throughout the property---stone foundations from the dining hall, a stone amphitheater in a mountain cove, old stone outdoor fireplaces, etc.----all making for interesting outdoor exploration.

This property is much more than a rental home---it's an adventure!

(Note: This is a newly added VRBO home, so look at my other home on the property if you'd like to see more reviews from former guest look at property number 350504. If this home is booked for the dates that you're interested in, then I suggest you consider the other home as well).

Great Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful holiday at Davids cabin. We had everything we needed and enjoyed exploring the property. 2 of the kids even camped out at the large cleared area led to by one of the trails. Fishing in the pond was a highlight. Theres plenty to do nearby. We hiked Triple Falls Trail which was perfect for family. Hopefully we can return soon!

Owner's Response: I loved having this family come visit! Justine and got to know one another very well leading up to their stay and I look forward to their return. Nothing is better than when my guests enjoy the property as much as my family and I do: it was my dream 20 years ago when I first stepped foot on this beautiful piece of the mountains! I enjoyed suggesting things for them to do, and hope to hear more about the great things seen and done---especially those good and bad to pass along. She gave me good feedback too, and I listened. I love it when my guests feel as if they care enough about the home to share ideas for improvements, new amenities, kitchen items, or just plain ole missing items or needing replacement/repairs. Janine is a gem!

Amazing and unforgettable experience

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful, simply amazing. David was friendly and super accessible, but I think my favorite part was the trout pond. We had a great time fishing with the family. Thank you David!

Owner's Response: And I would say the same of Alessandro! What a pleasure getting to know him through several calls for details and suggestions---which I enjoy doing with guests! I get to imagine that I'm almost planning a vacation too and am with you in heart! Hearing about Alessandro's family and their first fishing foray truly made me smile and happy to help make happen. By the way, Alessandro, I've just purchased new fishing equipment for guest use (nets, pliers, tackle, the "magic" trout paste, and more). Guests are welcome to use those, rods/reels, and other supplies such as filet knife and cutting board for cleaning them as long as items are cleaned and fixed/replaced by user if damaged or lost (or used entirely).

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we loved this cabin as did our 2 dogs. The cabin is nicely furnished and very comfortable and clean. The best part for us was all the land with ponds, babbling brooks, fields and secret pathways through the forest. The owner takes great care of the place and it shows. We were in a great location for all of our favorite places to hike. We have stayed in this general area before in various cabins but we have decided that this is the one we will come back to. The owner made us feel very welcome as did all the people we met whilst there.

We loved the porch and feeling of being in a tree house!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, roomy, welcoming. The location was very convenient for the purpose of our visit....the Brevard Music Festival. Afternoon storms, frogs bellowing after sunset, watching the sun and moon rise from the porch in the treetops made the trip very special.

The owner was patient. As a senior, I was challenged by on-line paperwork and texting but he communicated very timely, thoroughly and kindly.
